The cost of attendance includes tuition, student fees, and expenses for housing, health insurance, and personal items. Cost of Attendance is broken into two types of costs: direct and indirect costs.
Direct costs are tuition and student fees. Fees are determined based on program-specific needs.
Indirect costs are costs incurred by the students, such as the following:
- Books & Equipment
- Food & Personal (miscellaneous)
- Subject Examinations
Miscellaneous items include personal expenses for clothing, laundry, toiletries, recreational, and other expenses not limited to the listed items.

- Child care -- the cost of child care for students with dependent children
- Medical expenses that are not covered by insurance
- Residency Expenses
